Be a Lighthouse

August 7th is Lighthouse Day. Lighthouses of today have come a long way from building a fire on top of a hillside! The oldest working lighthouse in America is the Sandy Hook Lighthouse (built in 1764). The oldest working lighthouse in the world is the Tower of Hercules (almost 1900 years old).
One of my favorite authors is Cynthia Rylant, and I love her series The Lighthouse Family.
Wonderful illustrations and storyline

And here is a cool craft for Lighthouse Day.
